about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

ATB missed grand
Could possibly grade the west hand to 20 pt.s - 3 aces and 2 kings feels closer to a 2NT opener than 1D followed by 2N. (but I don't know your system of course). When I first looked at the hand, I thought east should have asked over 4C ...
Ethics of Taking Advantage of Hitches
You're planning on lying and you're asking whether it's ethical?
Who is to blame for this disaster
These auctions are easier when x shows 4 Spades and 1S shows 5
AKJTxx, Jx QJ9x, A .... 3!C doubled
Pd may not be able to afford a high spot
What Do You Make of This Jump?
I think that's how it's intended
A mildly interesting deal (NY winter regional)
Gave the goose a way a little by having South sit south :)
Is this Allowed?
Definitely a party foul
How do we get to 7!D?
A lot of the problems with these auctions is 2N is often better minor Lebensohl (depending on agreements). It costs on this hand, but probably is better in the long run.
ATB - playing 6!h
I like the auction until the push over 4H. 4H limits the hand (4D would have been last train) so now N knows S is limited. With only 2 pt.s and 4 cds in pd's suits, passing seems prudent
Another Humpty Dumpty Bid?
Amusingly, neither of us asked. We both assumed it was the minors.
